So, I just ordered a Jacket from Leatherup because of one review stating : "I wore it without the liner in very muggy 98 degree weather with the vents open and I was not hot at all."
As a bonus, another review said : "I've worn it and rode when it was 31? with a long sleeve thermal shirt and was fine. Been in the 40's and 50's most mornings since I got it and have just worn a plain old white fruit of the loom tshirt with the liner and been warm the whole time."
Soon, I won't be having to roll the collar under on my London Fog nubuck leather jacket with polyester lining... with zip-out warmer lining.
Yeah... its not a "motorcycle" jacket, but its what I had. I mean, people will ride in all kinds of clothes and footwear. Shorts, sandals, bikinis... but I don't want to risk the road rash. Two people tried to change lanes into the space I was occupying on the ride in this morning. Sure, a couple horn-blasts and they snapped back into their lane, but still... not worth risking it.
Jax Teller trips me out with his baggy low-rider jeans and his tennis shoes on his customized Dyna Superglide Sport. One more thing on SOA - the poster...
( uh, oh! The FXDX has a manual cruise control! Maybe its possible! )
Update : That jacket was WAY too small, so sent it back and went to several local motorcycle shops to find the jacket I have now - Power Trip Dakota II - although I wouldn't say it is waterproof...
Update : The Dakota II helps keep me very cool, even in July (so far). I'll wager that I am cooler than the people riding in t-shirts as I don't have direct sun hitting my skin. Jackets are just great - no sunburn, stay cool and, in case of a crash, you don't turn into hamburger.
